Teilhard and the struggle of life drawn to follow the road of fire – Ignatian Retreat
Sunday, 17 October, 7:00 pm–Friday, 22 October, 12:00 pm AEDT$790
Jesuit and Ignatian Spirituality Australia are hosting a residential retreat at the Don Bosco Retreat Centre. Sr Kathleen Duffy SSJ will be leading the retreat online from the US 4hrs per day. The retreat runs from Sunday 17 October 7pm to Friday 22 October 12 noon.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ is one of the most influential mystics of the 20th century. His explanation of the purpose and direction of evolution in Christ is a significant contribution to 21st century theology and science. Teilhard experienced many challenges in his life, yet despite the struggle and pain, he was able to encounter Christ in it, seeing each struggle as the way of growth, integration and creativity. Teilhard’s faith and spirituality can give us resources for the personal and global struggles of our world today.
Sister of St Joseph, Kathleen Duffy, PhD Physics will offer her expertise on Teilhard. Kathleen has written extensively on his scientific insights in the light of faith. Sr Kathleen will present a talk and a spiritual exercise twice a day, and invite questions and discussion for participants to pray and share.
